actually many of these audience recordings are very good, so there's no reason to skip these shows. I would recommend 5-8-79 as the best of the bunch, followed closely by 5-3 and 5-5 (SBD does exist for this one). It's interesting in that there seems to be 3 distinct periods of '79 that all sound different. There's the end of the Keith and Donna era where Jerry was playing the fastest licks of his life. They slowed down a little for the May through August shows, and then really slowed down for the fall tour.
